What’s Up?

In a world where we are inundated with what’s down, from climate change and social injustice, to refugees and racism, the future can feel hopeless. In 2019, TEDxCollingwood connects us to the individuals who see these challenges as opportunities to level up—to grow, innovate and make the world a better place.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxCollingwood, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxCollingwood event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
